RMG Statement Regarding Illinois EPA Permit For General III, LLC

The permit establishes that RMG has met all environmental requirements and the environmental controls and equipment at the new General III facility will exceed those found at any other steel shredding operation in Illinois or the surrounding states. The permit imposes strict conditions that will ensure we keep our commitment to respect and protect air quality and public health.


As we told the IEPA, numerous comments opposing the permit were wildly false and lacked either a factual basis or scientific evidence. We are looking forward to commencing operations in early 2021 with the most technologically advanced facility available and bringing jobs and commerce to the Southeast Side, where RMG has operated and provided community support for nearly three decades.
